Default portmaster question

i installed FreeBSD and now i'm going through the manual. i pkg_added portsnap, and updated ports with no problem. next, i 'cd /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/portmaster' as root, and then 'make install clean' with no problems. at this point 'man portmaster' pulls up the man page, but when i try 'portmaster -L' it says command not found, and port<tab> completes to portsnap. what have i done wrong?

Did you give the command rehash? (Needed if you use tcsh)

If you use csh as shell, type rehash as root
and it should work...

portsnap is available in 7.0 by default (as i know), no need to install it from ports

Just so you know, portsnap is part of the base system in every officially supported version of FreeBSD.
